The Benefits Of Christian Fellowship



Text: Acts 2:42-47; Hebrews 10:23-25

In every generation, God always have a faithful remnant among His children tasked with evangelizing the world with the gospel so that people can be converted to Christ and be brought into a living fellowship with Him and with one another. These responsible believers, in time, become fruitful and reproductive Christians.

As born again Christians, we are part of the body of Christ, but we must be members of a local assembly where there are opportunities for personal growth, carrying on the Great Commission, strengthening our faith and fellowshipping with one another.

Christian fellowship is an absolute necessity in the life of every believer. Whenever and wherever a Christian is isolated from others who have similar relationship with Jesus Christ, something would be missing from his or her life.

Though a person may have fellowship with Christ through prayer and study of the Word, mutual encouragement and strengthening that come from association with other believers will be absent.

Christian fellowship challenges us to grow in grace, pray for one another and reach those outside the fold of Christ. Through fellowship, we receive needed encouragement in time of weariness, failure and discouragement. Fellowship provides correction necessary for our spiritual growth.

We cannot become the men and women God wants us to be if we are out of fellowship of the brethren. “He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed” (Proverbs 13:20).

When we are in the company of others who know the Saviour and are committed to Him, we will grow in grace and in the knowledge of the Lord.
